Abstract: Farm mechanization does not mean the use of large and costly implements and tractors for different farm work. It is a need based practice, to increase net profit per unit, to maintain timeless operation and do difficult task which is not possible without mechanization. In spite of rapid farm mechanization. It would improve the traditional practice of ploughing with reducing drought and also increase field capacity and field efficiency of the implements. The farmers of Janjgir district are totally dependent on agriculture specially on kharif paddy. The role of improved farm implements are very important under different farm operations of farms. About 75 percent farmers of the district are marginal and small categories hence the implements in small & efficient equipments is mostly needed, to improve the per unit land productivity. This Technology introduced and modified during the year 2013-14. The trail was based on biasi system with the help of Power Tiller. It was new approach and new practices for biasi system in rice cultivation. In this technology the tynes were modified which made by local black smithy workshop so that they are highly motivated and impressed to adopt such technology in coming years. The studied were conducted by OFT/FLD on farmers field of district farmers during year 2013-14 to 2016-17. The highest average yield increased 12.05 % found in improved practice, BC ratio maximum was 2.34 as followed 2.14 in traditional practice whereas saving cost during biasi operation was average 610/- ha-1.
